    Simple question, what does this character represent? Is this just a meaningless repaint or is there a backstory to it? I've been contemplating on whether I want to get another normal Jetwing Prime from my local TRU or go for this Nightwatch version. Only catch is Nightwatch is $100 more, but, if I hear some good replies I might get him.

    Unless I'm missing something, wasn't Nightwatch the "Allspark Power" repaint of '07 Prime?

    It's just a repaint. Doesn't have a fictional backstory as far as I know. And it's only meaningless if you don't like it I suppose.

    I dunno but I personally find the paintworks on this new "Jetwing Prime" a little too busy for my taste. I guess I'm happier with the original Jetwing Prime or even his Black Repaint. :)

    I'm not fond of the Amazon repaint myself. The colors seem, strange. I have the original and I'm happy with it. If I pick up another jetwing it would be the nightwatch version, but the price is way up there and I can get MP-10 Takara for that.

    No, I was referring to the original Jetwing Prime in DOTM, not the "Asia Release". ;)

    Which Black repaint of Prime are you referring to?

    Ah I see now, there was some confusion when I said Amazon exclusive. I was referring to the Amazon exclusive Black Prme and not the recent Amazon Jetwing Prime.

    The whole pt of this thread was basically if I should get the Black version of Jetwing Prime(Nightwatch). I also wanted to know why it's called Nightwatch and not Nemesis Prime. Is there a story to the name or is it just a meaningless repaint.

    I should have added Jetwing to title, would have been clearer :eek:

    Dunno about the boys but I recommend getting him for:

    1) He's got a face! :lol 

    2) He's got those chrome wings & gattling guns that would fit in nicely with your Buster Prime. (If you've not gotten him already)

    3) He's one of the biggest toy in that series. THIS! (Especially we all know that future TFs are gonna be puny) :( 

    4) Any Black Prime is freaking cool! :cool:  (At least I think so)
